With the assistance of the Parks, Recreation & Culture Commission, the City of Delta is seeking community input regarding the enhancement of elements of Delview Park. These proposed enhancements include a washroom replacement, a new community shelter, a batting facility and relocation of the off-leash enclosure.
Based on an assesment of the current washroom, the City of Delta has deemed it necessary to replace the current building with a new washroom. Community consultation for the Park would propose the replacement of the existing eashroom building with a building similar to the one on Ferry Road.
Delta is preparing to construct a community shelter to support informal social gatherings by neighbours. Currently, community shelters exist in other areas of North Delta, like North Delta Community Park and Annieville Park.
The proposed shelter would be approximately 500 square feet in size, open on all sides, and recommended to have electricity and lighting available.
With the addition of a cricket pitch at Delview Park in May 2019, the construction of a batting/bowling facility would further support the use of athletic fields by both cricket and ball during the spring and summer seasons.
Practice times could be arranged for cricket participants using this new facility, ensuring the athletic field is available for slo-pitch. The batting/bowling facility could also be used for batting and pitching practice for ball-diamond based sports.
The open, passive park space in the southwest quadrant of the park will be the focus of the community consultation related to the relocation of the off-leash area. To accommodate the increase in usage of Delview Park, this space will be enlarged from 10,000 square feet of the current off-leash enclosure, to 30,000 square feet with proper drainage and a source of fresh water for dogs.
